‘Never Trump’ Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) used the occasion of the horrific attack that killed 10 people at a Buffalo, New York grocery store over the weekend to accuse Republicans of “enabling white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism.”
Her rhetoric echoed similar accusations from across the liberal media, seeking to score political points with a heinous tragedy.
The House GOP leadership has enabled white nationalism, white supremacy, and anti-semitism. History has taught us that what begins with words ends in far worse. @GOP leaders must renounce and reject these views and those who hold them.

And as usual, following closely behind Cheney, fellow token Republican Jan. 6 committee member Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) took a shot at GOP Chair Elise Stefanik, accusing her of advocating “replacement theory,” which is the latest moral panic hyped by the media.

Kinzinger’s tweet was referring to a Stefanik campaign ad that stated in part, “Radical Democrats are planning their most aggressive move yet: a PERMANENT ELECTION INSURRECTION.”
As explained by left-wing NPR, “In short, the ‘Great Replacement’ is a conspiracy theory that states that non-white individuals are being brought into the United States and other Western countries to ‘replace’ white voters to achieve a political agenda.”
Readers can do a simple Google search to see that the mainstream media frequently writes on the topic of white Americans becoming a minority.
A few recent headlines:
- White Americans Will Become a Minority. What Then? – Foreign Policy
- More than 400 U.S. counties are now minority white – Axios
- White fear of demographic change is a powerful psychological force – Vox
- Could white people become a minority in the U.S.? The census bureau says yes – WTSP Tampa
And it doesn’t take one very much longer to find voices openly celebrating that fact:
a more diverse, more inclusive society. this is fabulous news. now we need to prevent minority White rule. https://t.co/or1MIJHxdx

The Left’s Favorite Republicans
Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger are the two Republicans that the left hates to love. Both have taken over the role of late Sen. John McCain and always seem to be the first to blame Republicans.
In the case of both however, the fact that they are ever at the ready to assist Democrats and the left in trashing the GOP is due to a good portion of the Republican base are still ardent supporters of former President Donald Trump and not the squishy Bush, Romney, McConnell wing of the party.
As seems to be the case with most perpetrators of these sorts of despicable crimes, there is also a manifesto left behind in this case as well. The shooter apparently self-identifies as on the left, and dismisses conservatism as “corporatism in disguise.”
It’s also been reported that he has an affinity for the Azov Battalion in Ukraine:

As you may have predicted, the left has attempted to place blame at the foot of conservatives, Fox News, and Republicans. One Politico piece exclaimed that the GOP are facing “internal reckoning over harsh rhetoric towards immigrants…”.

In Other Crime News
While the nation mourns the senseless loss of life in Buffalo, at some point we should ask why other incidents from this past weekend haven’t earned wall-to-wall rhetoric from politicians and the media.
In downtown Milwaukee on Friday night, three separate shootings left an astonishing 21 people wounded, 17 in one of the incidents alone. Mayor Cavalier Johnson issued an 11 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. curfew for the area for Saturday and Sunday nights.
How many people reading this knew of any of those other incidents? Why has one been hyped over the others?
Anyone else notice how crime and violence in democrat run cities is no longer being reported by MSM?
